The 48 Hour Film Project will return to Detroit this weekend, July 18 through the 21, and right now, teams are gearing up to compete against each other in the 48-hour race against the clock!
MO POP boasts an impressive line-up – and among big names like Young The Giant, Cold War Kids, and Tokyo Police Club, we spotted Detroit’s own Flint Eastwood. We were lucky enough to chat with front-gal Jax Anderson in advance of their MO POP appearance this weekend. Check it out!
As a Detroit artist, I’ve always looked for a place to call home: a place to develop my skills, create, rehearse, and perform. There was no single place in the city that offered all of these things until Detroit Institute of Music Education (DIME) opened its doors this spring.
Meet Chris Chynoweth – video editor and director for Beast – one of the country’s top editorial facilities for commercials, music videos, and web virals. He’s one of the most sought-after music video editors in the Metro Detroit area, and CBS 62 had the chance to sit down and chat with him about our great city!
Live music, hot dogs, and vinyl – sounds like a pretty dreamy Sunday, right? That’s exactly what locals will find at the first-ever New Fortune Fest, coming to Hamtramck’s New Dodge Lounge this Sunday, May 25th.
“What goes on inside the haunted house BEFORE the family moves in?” That’s the tagline for the new film, written by local musician and author Josh Malerman. The film is set to shoot this summer in Detroit, with a team of local filmmakers.
With driving guitar melodies, touches of Americana, and flashes of power pop, The Paper Sound have cultivated a sound that is uniquely their own….and it’s lighting up Detroit. CBS 62 has an exclusive first-listen to a new track!
Forty musicians, broken into ten groups…tasked with writing ten original songs…in three months. Crazy? Maybe a little. Awesome? YES. CBS 62 had the chance to catch up with Derek John – a local gallery owner, familiar face in the Detroit music scene, and oh yeah…the mastermind behind DETROIT the Album. Check it out!
This will be my second year participating in DETROIT by DETROIT, and I couldn’t be happier. Last year, I teamed up with my good friend Omar Aragones to cover Mayer Hawthorne. Omar and I decided to do something a bit different this year; we plan on covering Detroit artist Sixto Rodriguez.
Not only does the film center on Detroit local artist John Panich, but the film will also feature Joe Average from Of Mice And Musicians and Jimmy Doom of Almighty Lumberjacks Of Death. Plus, keep your eyes (and ears) peeled for choreographed dances from Tunde Olaniran and guitar from Dave Taylor of The Amino Acids. It’s a project that is filled to the brim with local Detroit talent.
